Passion For Promarkers Challenge

I needed to make a card today for my stepdad's birthday and I was stuck for what to use until I went searching through Mo's Digital Pencil Shop where I found the perfect image called 'The Big Guy's Gardening'. My stepdad lives in his garden and he absolutely loves to grow and as well as eat tomatoes, although he looks nothing like the image but will have a laugh at it especially the cap which is one of his great pet hates lol.
I used the great sketch from Passion For Promarkers but I did turn it upside down to fit in better and as I didn't want to add flowers to the circle elements I added tomatoes lol. I also used an A5 card instead of the normal square one.


The papers are yet again all from the DCWV 'Linen Closet' stack, the tomatoes were cut on the Cricut from an SVG file I made myself from a clipart image, the border punch is the Fiskars 'Diamond' punch and the gems are 'Papermania Mosiac Tiles'.

Thanks for stopping by.
